VK5 Specification

Developed from the classic Viking Metal Detector, which was first introduced in 1976, the Viking VK5 Metal Detector remains to be one of the best selling and most successful Metal Detectors in the marketplace. This Detector, like its little brother the VK 1, is remarkably easy to use, having just two simple tuning control buttons (Fine Tuning and Coarse Tuning).

Along with an excellent record for reliability and its ability to detect desirable objects in an area with either heavily mineralised ground or one littered with rusty iron, this Metal Detector works well on both inland sites and the beach and gives excellent value for money, outperforming more expensive makes.

* Waterproof 20 cms (8") Search Head
* Fully Extended Length: 136 cms (5' 5½")
* Dismantled Length: 74 cms (2' 5")

* Non-Motion Detecting

* Headphone Socket
* Telescopic Shaft
* 'DD' Search Coils
